  1. Yes, you can take an extra course for next semester. Keep in mind your school's withdrawal policy also as it's well within the term. In addition, ensure you have a good plan moving forward for next semester as 6 courses is a lot tougher than it may seem.
  2. Ottawa has always had 156 seats. 8 seats are above-quota for CNFS which are funded differently. 156+8=164. The remaining two were likely from deference from the previous year.
  3. The 2 reserved seatings are designed for the pool of SAI applicants. It’s stated that you need to 1) be eligible for the seats first and 2) you’re placed into a different pool if you’re eligible for SAI status. If you don’t qualify for SAI status your application is moved back into the general French or English stream. So really, you need to qualify for SAI prior to file review. But with all things new and unclear, seek clarity from admissions through phone/email.
  4. If both show up as online in one semester, that entire academic year will be ineligible for the wGPA. Ottawa will allow no more than one online course or pass/fail course PER semester.
  5. If I read on that website correctly, SAI have to undergo the exact same pre-criteria as the general stream, therefore GPA, CASPer, ABS are subjective to the same cut-offs/scoring as the general stream. The only difference is that pre-interview you have a two chances to receive an interview invite
  6. I’m not a marker personally, but many of my colleague are. The process for scoring isn’t secretive at all they’re pretty explicit about it on their webinars in previous years. And I had typo, I didn’t mean hostile but rather “holistic” basis.
  7. No that is not true. You need to answer all three questions, not answering one can affect scoring. Per scenario is reviewed on a hostile basis with all three questions.
  8. Well, it's on their website and the admissions office can confirm it if you need clarification. You need to put total hours and then in brackets the approx. hours per week or months beside it.
  9. Not really recommended. Sometimes it works, sometimes your punctuation may show up as square boxes instead.
  10. Are they under one course code - if so, you just have to input the course.If they are separate components (i.e. two different course code) you should input them both. Regardless, admissions will double check your transcripts to ensure you did meet the prerequisites.
